Shokz launches new headphones for fitness enthusiasts

Music and exercise in harmony

No matter whether you run or swim, you should find a style that suits you.

the manufacture company Shakz It launches two new wireless headphones aimed primarily at people who exercise.

One model is called the Shokz OpenFit Air and uses the manufacturer's open-ear design, meaning the headphones don't block the listener's ear canal. This makes it easier to hear your surroundings, which is an advantage if, for example, you're running outdoors and need to keep an eye on your surroundings. The headphones are held in place by an over-the-ear extension, so they stay put even during physical activity. They have an IP54 rating to withstand rain and sweat for example. The sound is transmitted using so-called DirectPitch technology, and Shokz has also developed a new OpenBass Air algorithm to provide better bass.

The weight is less than nine grams and the battery life is up to six hours. The charging case provides an additional 22 hours of listening time, and ten minutes of charging provides two hours of listening time. The OpenFit Air is available in pink, white and black and is priced at SEK 1,499.

Shokz also launched the OpenSwim Pro this week, and as the name suggests, it's primarily aimed at swimmers, although it can also be used for other activities. The headphones have an IP68 rating and use bone conduction, which sends sound vibrations through the cheekbone to the inner ear. The phones have Bluetooth, but they also have a built-in MP3 player with 32GB of memory that can be used even without a mobile phone nearby.
